Kobe Believes Laker Fans Will "Fall In Line" For LeBron James


Not everyone in Los Angeles is thrilled about LeBron James becoming a Laker.

In fact, sme are quite upset about it.

Mostly, it's the Kobe fans who have a problem, as they tend to have a hatred of LeBron James.

Despite all the hate and the vandalism, Kobe Bryant still believes the fans will warm up to The King's arrival. Heres what he said to Rich Eisen:

"I hear that. But listen, if you are fan of mine, you are a fan of winning, you are a fan of the Lakers. I bleed purple and gold. So, that is above anything else."

"I have been a Lakers fan since I was yay high. That is never going to change. Right? [It] is about winning championships. So, they'll fall in line."

Kobe is speaking directly to his fans here.

Whether or not they'll listen is one thing, but hopefully, they at least give LeBron a chance, especially if he gets the Lakers far this season.
